Introduction

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have little in common—one of the only similarities is that they are both Baby Boomers. That means they are part of the largest generation to date to confront, and experience, aging in America. They also represent the diversity of Baby Boomers—Hillary Clinton married at the age of twenty-seven and has one child, whereas Donald Trump is on his third marriage and has numerous children. Like others of their generation, their experiences of growing old in America and facing serious illness are defined, in part, by their marital practices and fertility rates—although, unlike others, they experience class protection.
